The way Bruce Boxleitner appears or comes across to others is very congruent with his true nature; what he sees is what you get. The description below corroborates what you read about Bruce in the previous chapter. If at all possible, Boxleitner should avoid living in large cities, as he needs natural surroundings.
He is a steadfast and patient soul, capable of tremendous devotion, dedication, endurance and constancy. The ability to follow through and stick with things is one of his greatest assets.
